Oklahoma City Skyline
Oklahoma City Skyline

If you want to experience America's native history, you'll need to visit Oklahoma, where more American Indian tribes are headquartered than in any other state. Once a frontier state, Oklahoma has grown without losing its Western charm - Oklahomans are just as likely to dress in cowboy boots and hats as they are to wear suits. Visitors can also revel in the state's rich heritage by checking out the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City, one of the area's most popular attractions.

Yes, you can still view buffalo herds at a number of locations, but you can find great business destinations across the state as well. Oklahoma City is one of the most accommodating meeting destinations in the Southwest, boasting 12,000 hotel rooms, affordable rates and friendly atmosphere, making it an ideal location for any size meeting. And just a block away from the city's convention center is charming Bricktown, Oklahoma City's newest entertainment and dining district, complete with a mile-long pedestrian canal and water taxis!

Historical Note: In the 1880s, after the  region was settled, outlaws were attracted to Oklahoma. Law enforcement was not established and the landscape offered many hideouts. The worst outlaw gang of the 1890s was the Doolin Gang, which was headed by Bill Doolin. Three women outlaws were members of the Doolin Gang; Cattle Annie, Little Britches and Rose E. Dunn, the "Rose of the Cimarron." One of the most famous women outlaws, Belle Starr, made her home in Oklahoma. Some of the crimes she was accused of were arson, robbery, horse theft, and bootlegging. In 1882, the "Hanging Judge" Isaac Parker sent her to federal prison for horse theft.
